I have Exchange 2003 front-end with RPC over HTTPS.
External users can send and recieve emails.
I try to change password by Outlook form:  Tools-->Options-->Advance-->Custom Form-->Password
and I got error.

Same form to change password working good if I connect user to VPN.
Should I configure any speacial settings in RPC proxy to enable password changing?

RPC proxy is inside LAN and NOT DMZ so it can access all servers including PDC emulator and GC.

                           Based on my research, I found that we can’t change password when we use Outlook to connect to our Exchange server mailbox by using RPC over HTTP. We can use the following methods to do that:

===>Log on through a VPN connection to the network.

====>Log on to the Local Area Network (LAN).

=====>Use the Internet Information Server (IIS) Change Password feature with Outlook Web Access (OWA). For information about how to configure the IIS Change Password feature.

When you use Outlook to connect to your Exchange server mailbox by using RPC over HTTP, you receive messages that continuously prompt you for your network password
